A guy i met a car show last year kept in contact with me and got ahold of me about putting a system in his sons car who would soon turn 16 and he wanted it to be his birthday present. he presented me with his budget and wanted sub amp speakers deck the whole deal. he did not want to take up the whole trunk.. and i knew from experience that mustangs have **** for a trunk opening. since the kid goes to a school that has alot of my competitors business and not alot of mine, i didnt want to jsut throw a plain box in the trunk, and also he would be shoing it with his dads cars. so i got to work.

PS. didnt take alot of build pics sorry!

i first built the box. if i remeber correctly it was around 2 cubic ft. tuned at 35hz. 45d corners as always. i primed and sealed it becasue i would later be painting it wil gloss paint.

the way the box would be constructed i made it to where the woofer would mount from inside the box, this would make it a lesser chance of any sccrews breaking and civing more clearance under the box. the top would then be sealed with foam strip and screwed on . then i would have to attach the feet of the box which are 2x4's doubled up.

i used my router and some jigs to create the front trim panal and smoothed all of the edgges with a roundover. ( only 1 port opening will be functional. the other is for cosmetic purposes.)

i covered the front trim panal in grey trunkliner that matched the stock trunk and grille cloth on the back of the port openings. since the box is downfiring i did not have to make bass tranfer aperatures in the trim panal.

i i used 1/2 plexi on the front of the box and screwed and sealed it. no flex at all. then topped it off with LEDS that are wired into the lid switch.

here it is done. it sounds amazing from the cabin. i ran into some issues with the grille cloth making some noise on the lower frequencies but they are not audible from inside the car at all. i was very happy wiith the sound of it, im sure it coul dbe a lil louder if i just built a big *** box in the trunk, but that wasnt the plan here :) happy birthday lol

yep downfiring is a cool deal, protects the sub, improves low frequescy extension, and eliminated audible cone distorsion

wow nice man! realy love the window!
little question about the down firing; is there a minimum amount of space needed to flow (or is that space also tuned to something?)

greetings from holland:)

you dont really need a certain amount. i like to keep it atleast 3 inches away from the flooor. unless your dealin with 8's or smaller woofers then you can move down. its a good concept when you dont ahve alot of cone area. and your woofer wont unload when u open the trunk lol

thanx for the reply! oke I own 2 digital design 8" en thinking about trying it because its a family ride so there goes a lot of stuff in the truck that could damage the sub's.
